Hi PH! I wanted an easy way to send postcards, so, over a few weekends I built The Simple Postcard. Send a postcard by text message! To get started, just text a photo to 251 265 2848. (My girlfriend made the website look good!) Let me know what you think!

@jastrauss tried to scan my CC and entered the payment only to get a 500 error. EDIT: Must have been a hiccup because it went through the second time.

@sethlouey Looks like Stripe had an issue with the card. Glad it worked now!

@jastrauss Very cool product, Jason. Added the number to my address book. Are you hoping to integrate payment into cell phone bill or a Paypal login to avoid having to type credit card into mobile (which is kind of a pain)?

@gregbilsland Select "Remember me" on checkout, so you don't have type in the cc info every time! I haven't found an easy way to charge via the cellphone bill. I will likely add Paypal soon!

Squirting mustard on things since 2016.
I love this idea! And at $2, the price is right. Very nice idea.

I really like the idea. People love receiving postcards. I did a vid on my channel 3 weeks ago about sending postcards to people and sent more than 50 I wrote myself. 10 different countries. Do you think you could get this international? Because I want to keep doing that in my vids but sending my own pics. Here's a link to the vid: http://bit.ly/2a2NHwr
